Hyslop Welcomes 88,860 Euro rise in Erasmus+ Funding
Local Constituency MSP Fiona Hyslop has welcomed the rise in funding for the Erasmus+ EU Programme to the tune of 88,860 Euros, approximately £78,169, for the Linlithgow Constituency alone.
Erasmus+, the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport is delivered in the UK through a partnership between the British Council and Ecorys UK.
“I am pleased to see this funding increase for Erasmus+, the European Union programme as it demonstrates a huge appetite across West Lothian’s education, youth and voluntary sectors for international exchange, collaboration and partnership.
“This clearly shows the importance of EU funding and how schools in my constituency have benefitted through 88,860 Euros in funding in 2018 and I would like to pass on my congratulations to the communities across West Lothian who are making this important work happen.
“I would encourage all local community groups in my constituency with links to education, training, youth and sport to keep their eye on the Erasmus+ website for details of future funding applications.”
